, the migration, jim crow, the depression and that all their steps forward and steps backward reflect if of who we are. so i think i thought about it like that. >> actually i was wondering if you thought of it as a smaller project? in other words not that you would not have to put in context the individuals that make family tree and some of whom we see scrolling behind us but it strikes me in the writing of the book that it contained a social history, that it was a black wife, broke -- both rural urban, southern sweeping and it was intimate. i was just wondering, did that scale happen as a result of the actual research when you put pen to paper fingertip to keyboard and you thought, this is much more than i thought it would be when i set out to do this? >> i think that i always had an idea that her family was reflect that, but you are right that when you are in it it becomes something else. one of the things that actually is a practical matter as a writer which became clear to me is that when you are digging back this far you don't have the voices that you need to bring the story to life. and some

in jim clancy. i want to start with the government attacks today in and around damascus. what is the government's goal here? >> the government is extremely concerned. they're losing their grip on the suburbs of the capital. all of this is within ear shot of the presidential palace. but it is really -- i think it is only fair to say it to admit what is going on here. they are targeting civilians in whatever numbers they can find. the regime obviously frustrated, they have not been able to strike with any significant effect on the free syrian army, on the rebel and opposition groups and they have turned to civilians who are lining up, whether it is for bread or whether it is for fuel, some 75 people known to have been killed in this incident alone. it reflects the pattern that we're seeing here, don. a pattern of increased casualties. we were looking at a thousand casualties a month at one point. and now it is probably more than a thousand a week. we have been well over 100 for almost as long as i can remember. >> in announcing its analysis of the human toll of the war, the u.n.

from jim in hot springs national park, arkansas. what kind of business do you own? caller: the last one i had, i was in the construction business. and when i sold my last house i decided to move too hot springs, the first resort in america. host: you are a retired business owner? caller: right. host: if you were still running your business, how would you be looking at the fiscal cliff? caller: i've got some ideas i would like to say. the first thing we would do is eliminate all the people that do the free housing and food stamps and by about all those office expenses and just go with an earned income credits that would not exceed 15 cows and dollars per year. -- $15,000.ould that affec it would help reduce the need for taxes, so they would have more money for others things, rather than paying taxes. if the current welfare system pays people as much as $45,000 a year to add up all the benefits, the free medical, with medical,to doctors or hospitals would cause normally $1,500 a month, but an insurance company for a family, and they get about $800 a month for free housing and another $70
? >> we met with jim mcgrath yesterday. he said there is one thing i can assure you, his trademark sense of humor is intact. he is not on a ventilator, giving doctors and nurses hell in there. the guy is 88. 85th birthday three years ago, skydiving. he did it for his 80th, 75th. this guy likes to be active. loves the thrill of life and excitement. by the way, when he finished his skydiving on the 85th? he said how do you feel? when he said i don't feel a day over 84. my sense is, he is dog well and getting better, but it will take time, he's just an older guy. drew. >> miguel, thanks. we certainly wish the president all the best in getting better. >> it is 21 minutes after the hour. let's get you up to date on the top stories. congressional leaders on both sides have been summoned by the president to come to the white house today for an 11th hour fiscal cliff showdown. just four days remain to got a deal done or massive tax hikes and spending cuts kick in on tuesday. >>> the u.s. embassy clearing out of an african nation this morning. deteriorating security has forced the u.s. state depa
jim ramstead and patrick kennedy talking about being in recovery, and the fact that good people get this disease. it's a bad disease. but good people get it and successful people get it and we can recover. >> as she mentioned, we talked about it in the past, it's been a disease that men have battled. what is it you think people will be able take away from the documentary to open their eyes to the problem at hand? >> well, i think two-fold. one, this stigma, it is interesting that for mothers in particular, there's this idea in our society that we should be perfect and on all the time. i think there is a real harsh judgment against women that might pick up a drink to cope and before they know it, this disease really grabs them. i think that's one thing. and i also think understanding the psychological pressures that women are under nowadays is very, very key. seeing that in our sisters and our mothers and our friends and our children, being able to understand more and deal with it with compassion and sympathy instead of judgment. >> the movie will be premiering here in the d.c. area.
been going on for years in iowa, my friend, former colleague, jim leech and i had written about that. it's happening in california, in arizona, even a little bit in florida. that is part of the problem. nationally they got more than a million more votes than republicans who ran for the house of representatives. yet they come into this with a 5-vote margin and there are some areas where in north carolina there were more votes for democrats than republicans but there are only 20 -- 27% of the representatives are democrats. it confuses the notion of mandate. the president won decisively, the president picked up ground and we had a million more votes nationwide for the house of representatives. that doesn't sound like much of a national mandate to continue the policies of the republicans over the last decade or so. host: let's go to the republican line, david from ohio. i would love to be able to buy my children ferraris or the president kept on saying he wanted a balanced attack. to this problem. which i agree that you had to increase the revenues, but you also got to address the spendi
changed with in the room. >> jim of cnn sends out this week. -- tweet. how could the senate passed this 89-8 and yet it is so hard to get it done in the house? >> this is not the first time this has happened. there was a payroll tax cut extension. when you are elected, you have voters from all over the state. you have a lot of people with similar views about the world. when you are talking to your base back home, that is the way it works. one house member, a republican, was saying he had to watch out for his own voters more than the electorate in general. >> thank you for holding. you are on the air. >> hello. i want to know why he. i worked at a company for five years. i am unemployed now. i am getting unemployment. hi husband doesn't work. it was a single family income. i want to know and understand how a cameo -- can you try to raise everyone's taxes and make the poor and like me -- and i am struggling to keep my home right now. nobody wants to come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff. >> i saw a report by the washington post that 71% of people will have their taxes raised by this deal?
gone up. guest: i guess that's one way to look at it, sure. host: let's go to floral city, florida. jim on the republicans line. caller: good morning. i don't so much have a question but a comment. i feel that most of the conversation in washington is about money and it's more, more, more, more. they're going to waste every dime they get. so the problem i consider is that they have too much money. not that they have too little. they don't need more. if we were to update our computer system we could probably do 60% to 70% of our governmental business on a computer and let the people run it instead of our bureaucrats. it just makes no sense. i've only heard just a very few words regarding the fact that they spend too much money. guest: we do. we spend too much money. and unfortunately you're absolutely right. we don't hear that enough and for that reason that was the reason we got the compromise last night. enough people are willing to look the other way on the spending. again, i understand the folks who voted for it. both democrats and republicans alike. they don't want to go over the cl
